Linux FreeS/WAN 2.03 VPN Detection

Info Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3592

Synopsis

The remote host is running the Linux FreeS/WAN 2.03 VPN Server.

Description

The remote host is running the Linux FreeS/WAN 2.03 VPN Server. A VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows remote users to connect to an internal network as if they were local users. A VPN that allows split-tunneling will essentially serve as a bridge between the remote network and the internal network. Special care should be taken to ensure that remote VPN clients connect securely and do not introduce an unacceptable level of risk to the internal computing environment.

Solution

Ensure that the VPN is acceptable according to corporate guidelines and policies.
